Need check up: Bleeding anywhere in the body is a cause for concern. So watch yourself more closely and use white (toilet paper)paper to wipe. If the bleeding persists(and it is not time for your period) you need to see a gynecologist or a urologist to find out where you are bleeding from? Then the cause can be treated.

A 26-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to have pelvic pain in the 2nd trimester?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Patrick Weix
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: I hate to call pain "normal" but it is very common. If the pain is accompanied by vaginal bleeding, you should contact your doctor right away. Some causes of pelvic pain are treatable: such as bladder infections, low back pain, etc. Some seem to be related to pelvic pressure due to vascular congestion or stretching of scar tissue (adhesions) from previous surgeries.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Is it true that pregnant women are not allowed to be blood donors?

Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
Specializes in Gynecology
Yes: We do not consider it safe for a pregnant woman to donate blood. Blood volume increases dramatically over the course of pregnancy in order to support proper fetal circulation. The loss of blood from the system would likely be tolerated, but the system is not designed for that. Given the potential risks and the lack of anything to be gained, blood donation is not allowed during pregnancy.

Exercises or support: Exercises such as yoga, Pilates or physical therapy may help. There are support belts that may also help. The pelvic discomfort is related to relaxation of the tendons and ligaments that connect the bones of the pelvis to allow a baby to pass through.

Circular muscle: The lining of the vagina(epithelium) is surrounded by circular muscle that can contract around objects and a potential space that can expand as well. Expansion projects include childbirth, sex and tampon placement.

Hemoglobin hematocrit and red blood cell low counts and glucose and nitrogen high what is cause

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Numbers are numbers: Lab results are numbers, and numbers are just numbers. They have little meaning without looking at the whole person. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, and red blood cell counts means blood cells are not being made fast enough, are being lost (through bleeding), are being broken up, or any combination of such problems. Glucose goes up from increased body stress, inadequate insulin, I.V. Glucose, etc....
